Preserving Old Tole
I have a large tole tray painted by my Mother in 1962. It is gorgeous, however the shiny finish is beginning to crackle.
The painting is still excellent, just the crackling
I do not wax or clean it other than dusting.
I believe the materials used in the 60's may be different than todays.....though not sure as I am not a painter.
Would appreciate input on the proper way to care for and preserve this tray from further deterioration.
I vaguely remember she said use PLedge to protect it....
